Kool-Aid Day GIVEAWAY (10-12)

Still Rockin' - 2012 Kool-Aid Days!
August 10-12, 2012


Join the celebration the 2nd weekend of August! We're Still Rockin' fifteen years later and celebrating Edwin Perkin's invention of Kool-Aid 85 years ago.





In 1927, Edwin Perkins invented Kool-Aid in Hastings, Nebraska. The six original flavors were strawberry, cherry, lemon-lime, grape, orange and raspberry (Mr. Perkins’ favorite). Nearly 80 years later, Kraft Foods owns Kool-Aid. Over 500 million gallons are consumed each year worldwide by Kids of all ages!

Kool-Aid Man officially was created in 1975, but his smiling face and pitcher physique have been around far longer. Pitcher man, as he was called before 1975, was created in 1954 by Marvin Potts, an art director for a New York-based advertising agency. And in 1975, Kraft Foods created the first costume of the icon. Pitcher man was given legs and arms — and thus Kool-Aid Man was born.

  1. Always liked the grape flavor and the lime. Most of the time, though, my mom bought Fizzees rather than Kool-Aid. http://www.fizzies.com/

  4. Thanks for featuring--and loving--something from my home town! It's a big celebration this year with a revamped display and lots of fun. My Grampa used to work 'the world's biggest Kool-Aid stand' every year during the days.

    Guess I'm boring. My fave has always been plain ol' cherry.

  11. My favorite flavors (when I could talk my mother into giving me the .05 cents it cost) were cherry and raspberry. We had a fridge in the kitchen of the family's real estate office.

    I'd con someone into making it, and have it to drink on hot summer days.

  19. I've never actually had Kool-Aid before, but I would love to try the grape flavour.

  20. I love the cherry flavor and when they branched out to the more exotic some of those were awesome. Over the years Kool-Aid has turned into an awesome memory of childhood - those hot days where we would suck on Kool-Aid ice cubes and feel like we had the best popsicles in the world. The contests to see who could make the best Kool-Aid mustachio ;=D will it be the grape or the cherry? LOL What great fun to share some fond memories and a treat with friends. Thank you for sharing with us!

  24. I think for classic flavors Grape is my favorite. The newer flavors like Blue Ice Raspberry and Lemon Lime are really good too.
    Kool-Aid is one of the things from your childhood that never gets old. I still remember the Kool-Aid Man comic books from the 80's. Those were awesome. Great giveaway and post.
